LET’S MAKE A CLUTCH >

Supplies to make your DIY Foil Clutch:

  • 1 Roll padded foil – I used foil for lining kitchen shelves found at the 99cents store
  • Needle & thread
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • Assorted beads
  • Hot glue
  • Snaps or Velcro (I recommend Velcro)
  • Pencil and paper to make a flower template

DIY Foil Clutch Supplies
step 1
Measure your foil to the size you want to make your clutch.

I made mine 11 inches wide by 7.5 inches high.

The flap is almost as high as the bag 7 inches.DIY Foil Clutch Measure

step 2
Pin the sides of your bag together to hold it while you hand stitch it together.

Using your needle and thread carefully sew the sides of your clutch together.

step 3
After the sides of your bag are sewn, youll want to mark where youll place your snaps or Velcro.

Even though I used snaps, I recommend using Velcro because it would put less stress on the foil when opening and closing your bag.

Using your needle and thread sew your snaps or Velcro to your bag.DIY Foil Clutch Sewing

step 4
On your paper draw a simple flower.

I made two sizes.

Trace your flowers on your foil. Trace a bunch, I made 6 large flowers and 13 small flowers.

Cut them out.

step 5
Using your hot glue gun glue your flowers all over the front flap of your clutch.

Spread the flowers out evenly, I glued the large flowers on first and then used the smaller flowers to fill in.DIY Foil Clutch Flowers

step 6
Once youve glued all your flowers to your clutch, add your beads.

I glued one bead to the center of each flower.

I mixed up the sizes and color shades.DIY Foil Clutch FinishedDIY Foil Clutch Photo 2DIY Foil Clutch Photo 1
